I found the following information at

Awakenings Documentary

This 1974 Yorkshire Television documentary (never released in the United States) features interviews and dramatic footage of Dr. Sacks' original post-encephalitic patients who were awakened by L-dopa in the summer of 1969. The U.S. premiere was held as part of the Mead Film Festival at the American Museum of Natural History on July 22, 2000.
